Agree with prior reviews -- great place, shady, quiet, off the beaten path. Do not bring a big rig here -- narrow roads, low branches, tight corners and campsites. Small trailers or motorhomes will do just fine. - Prof Dan

For a deep redwood forest experience, this place can't be beat. Most sites are surrounded by big trees. Some are right next to a creek. It was very quiet and the sites were huge. The only negative is the 5-mile very narrow access road. The campground road goes between some huge redwoods and is about 9' wide in one spot. There is also a narrow bridge just before the ranger hut. Once we were in the park I had no problem backing our 22' trailer in. There are tons of hiking trails and plenty of streams. Again the redwoods are incredible. It's fine for dogs, although they are not allowed on the hiking trails. There are plenty of isolated forest roads and horse trails to take them on though -- most in deep forest. We really enjoyed it and would go back. - sky trailer

Campground is loaded with redwoods and is beautiful. $35 for a tent site with no electric is a little steep, especially when there are pay showers too. Sites not too close together, but nighttime noise, even though quiet hours are posted, is annoying with no consideration from other campers. Never saw a ranger once it was past quiet hours. Typical state park campground. We did not make a reservation and had plenty of first serve sites available. - Rick Frazier

We were going to look for a private park with hookups, but decided to stay in Burlington Campground for the gorgeous setting - in the midst of redwoods. Also 33' is the listed max size, but our 35' motor home would fit in several with room for our toad car, especially #32, 33 (handicapped) and 37; possibly others such as #58 but they were closed for the season. You need to navigate the drives VERY Carefully, but it is doable. Campground host was very friendly and helpful in suggesting sites. Even though it was February and few campers, I would still say most sites exceeded the average state park or private campgrounds. Verizon worked but not T-Mobile. Pricey for no hookups, but you paid for scenery and convenience to Founders Grove, Visitors Center, etc. - BandD

Beautiful campground in an old growth Redwood grove. Very close to lots of terrific Redwood hikes. Not recommended for larger rigs because it is difficult to get to the smallish campsites. No services. Weak AT&T and Verizon signal. Clean restrooms, pay showers, friendly staff. Terrific visitors center next door. It is very dark in the grove so staying for long stretches of time can wear on a person. $35 dollars a night is pricey, but well tended. Maintenance comes twice a day. - Lee and Trace

Stayed in Burlington campground. There's road noise from Hwy 101, recommend staying closer to Ave. of the Giants. Reserve carefully, some sites are smallish. We stayed in site 37, and had to go the wrong way on a one-way for a bit to orient our trailer to the site. The scenery is well worth a visit. I'd avoid weekends - the place gets a bit "party hardy". - Bruce Wray

We stayed at the Hidden Creek Campground, which is carved into a relatively steep hillside. Sites fairly close together. Everthing either uphill or downhill, not the best for fairly fit senior walkers like me. Trails poorly marked and no distances listed, just signs that say to this place or that. Never got a sense we were among the redwoods. - 1947red

Burlington Campground next to the Visitors Center. The campground is located between hwy 101 and Avenue of the Giants so no matter where you're camped, you'll get road noise. That being said, camping in a grove of redwoods is mystical. They did a good job of shielding sites with giant stumps and trees since there is no ground shrubs or sun because of the dense canopy. Bathrooms are new and 50 cents for 5 minutes for a hot shower is a luxury after hiking through the beautiful trails. There is AT&T cell coverage but not enough bars for Internet. Nice kitchen washing station and plenty of potable water faucets. - Thunderboldt

We visited Redwoods RV in early December, obviously the off season. We always research parks on our intended route and this was no exception. Being full time RVers, we have found that a little investigation is worth the effort. But we were surprised the pictures on the website were not indicative of the park. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I believe they are systematically upgrading things, but they do have their work cut out for them. With that said, it is a pretty setting, and proximity to Avenue of the Giants is great. WIFI was above average, 200mbs free per day, then $5 for one gig if you need more. Good news is that prevents everyone from streaming and causing the speeds to crash for all. The immeadiate area around the park was questionable, but it was quiet and there were no safety concerns. We stayed in a 38 ft fifth wheel. - kltfaught

I believed the photos of the park, so when we arrived I was at first very disappointed. I expected to park under redwoods and sit by a river...OOPS! The park was nice, but there are really only a few large trees. The river is a large gravel bar with a few small wading pools. Our site was huge with plenty of room to spread out and it was under the alder and birch trees. It was dusty and dry, but it's August. The check-in was friendly and provided all the info we needed. So, I guess if I hadn't had higher hopes for the place I would have rated it higher, but the expectations from the website led me to believe we were camping in the big trees which was what I really wanted to be doing! My mistake. - sail2blue

We love the location, right on the Eel River, so you can jump in any time. The sites are spacious and some of them are shady - the ones that don't look shady usually get shade in the afternoon because there are plenty of trees. The weather was over 100*, but there's a lovely cooling breeze from the river, so we were comfortable. Each roomy site has a picnic table and a fire ring with a grille, so we could cook and there was plenty of room for our truck. Lots of tent sites around the perimeter. Full hookups are available, but we had water and power but no sewer. The dump station is handy and has a hose attached, and everyone was very friendly. Gravel sites. The store is barely a store at all, but does have ice, decent wines, and beers, and the one in town, 1/4 mile away, is hardly better, so come prepared. Very handy to the Avenue of the Giants. Friendly staff, but they need to revise their WiFi policy - you get a small amount of bandwidth with your site, but 1 gig extra is $5 and 5 gigs is $20 extra, and it's for ONE device. So you can't use more than one device while there. You need to shut down the WiFi every time you stop using it. Overall, it was a pleasant stay, but next time we'll be more fully prepared so we don't need to buy anything. - MargaretB

This is a nice small resort, but it needs a little TLC. Everything seems just a little faded, although all the cabins seems to have been recently painted, with some new picnic tables. The RV park is very small, with only 2 pull-through's, and 6-7 back-in's. Tough to turn a big rig around in it. Good Wi-Fi, and free cable TV (only 10 channels, but there's no other TV). Verizon didn't work here. Nice hot tub spa and group fire pit, with free firewood provided for it. Campfires can be had at individual sites, but only in fire tubs provided (which are the inside tubs of old washing machines. These work very well for campfires). The main attraction for this park is its location, right on old Hwy 101 (Ave of the Giants). Superb location to view some of the greatest ancient redwoods. Priced a little high, but big rigs won't fit in any of the CA state parks. - dennmattgano

The staff were friendly and helpful. The sites are fairly large and level. We found this park to be excellent value as all services were included in the price including cable TV and WiFi. It does not have a pool but does have a hot tub. We would return to this park. - BC Wanderer

Although the bathrooms were old, decrepit, and not very clean, this was actually a pretty nice park because it was so shady and quiet. It is right next to Avenue of the Giants, and not far from Highway 101, yet we could not hear the road at all. The campsites are shaded by redwood trees. The sites were not level, and the mixed dirt/gravel surface might get muddy in the rain. There were no markets or gas stations in the area. However, if you want to visit the Humboldt redwoods, this may be the most convenient private campground in the area, especially since it is at the north (i.e. cooler) end of the Humboldt State Park. - Prof Dan

Nestled in the redwood forests, this is the quietest park we have ever stayed in. The RV park is acutally on the Avenue of the Giants. The spaces are large and easy to navigate. The owner is on-site and is superhelpful (and he has a tremendous gift shop; his family has owned the site for over 50 years). Small grocery stores within few miles; biggest town is Fortuna, about 20 minutes away. The major redwood attractions are within 10 to 20 minutes from the park, including the Giant Redwood tree (biggest tree in the world). Highly recommend this RV Park! - Walt and Adrienne Whatley

A newer park. A clearing in the redwoods. Sites are decent size pull thrus with plastic table and fire ring. No cable. Wifi was decent but I was told it gets a bit slow when the park is full in the summer. We enjoyed the park and the location and ease of entry/exit are great. I would definitely return if traveling through this area again. - Danrenowine

This was such a nice experience. The RV park is small, with wide sites and grass between sites. You check in at the gift shop and choose your own site. We were able to get WiFi and satellite TV but no AT&T cell service. Dog enjoyed walking around the park but no walks directly from there. This was great for one night but need a toad if you want to do anything outside of staying at the RV park. - Slkeyes

We stayed for a week, so got the weekly rate. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We had good power (30 amp) and water but no sewer. Our site was generous. The whole travelers' RV parking area was fresh cut grass, which we really enjoyed compared to gravel or sand. Lots of redwoods and blackberry bushes surrounded that area, so it was lovely to look out at. This was non peak season so few other RVs joined us. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they weren't all that visible from our site. - TJElser
Apr 2016 - $18.00
Based on pouring rain and just needing a place for the night at a decent rate we ended up here. If the weather was good it would have been OK, not great, but OK, but site was very wet. Too tired and wet to move on. Site on was grass and maybe gravel underneath. Pull through sites. Place has not had much invested in making it better and some older full-time places in the front. Not the worse I have stayed, but weather really made it not enjoyable. - RPWAINC

Add to previous reviews that they now have good WIFI in the park. Tables at each site. Great management. Be sure to look at the cabin (?) in a 1500 year old tree stump. The rate is PA. We would stay here again if passing through. - A hitch and hop

We've been full timing for 7 years now. The place wins the award for the biggest dump we've stayed at. The site was paved but very narrow. It had been raining a lot so our coach was in a lake due to poor or nonexistent drainage and we were in a huge mud hole. The rest rooms were disgusting at best and the showers have a patina of crud every where you looked and were barely warm. There are a lot of full time folks with rigs covered with tarps and garbage everywhere. They have wifi but we could get nothing from their site. Verizion and MIFI works down there. Traffic nose from 101 is pretty loud but the traffic is only moderate. We may stay here again because it's the closest place to some friends we like to visit. Even if they dropped the price down to $5/night I wouldn't recommend it. They have a dump station that had the lid open and 6" of rain water standing in the containment basin. I really surprised that the health department hasn't shut this place down. - pumper9x9

Stayed at 183 campground in the last 5 years since we retired - this has to be the worst ever.
In the 6 days we stayed there in March 2014 restrooms were not cleaned at all I took a GI shower in the MH as it was nasty. We finally moved to site with sewer but left a day early and gave up the money.
Park is full of run down Rv's that are in horrible shape. Most of the park is full time folks. Dogs running loose all over. I walked our dog out of the campground.
Good Sam rating of this campground is not to be believed. - rr2254545

We wanted a stop over spot for one night, and had a RV site and a tent site. Dean Creek is a pretty little campground right off Hwy 101. You will hear the traffic. It is an older campground that looks like it is getting some upgrades, but has a ways to go. The staff was friendly. They have a pool, spa and sauna. They have an old minature golf course that is free and was fun despite needing repairs. The sites are very close, if you have slide outs you are right over the next site's picnic table or fire pit. I was also overcharged and am waiting to see if they make it right. - seabreezervers

This is a very well kept up park. Very clean and a nice staff. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. We always enjoy our visit. - Bob&Heidi

This could be a very nice park on the river but needs lots of cleaning up. Mostly permanent people. Staff friendly. Stayed here 20 years ago but would not stay again. - TeamElk-Rib
Mar 2009 - $22.00
Friendly owner. Many long term residents with very unsightly rigs. Located very close to the Eel River with beautiful views of the river and bluffs on the opposite side. Washrooms were adequate. Laundromat expensive with wash and dry each costing $2. This site has a lot of potential because of the location but it needs a lot of clean up. As an overnight stay this was OK. - stodarca

It was a holiday weekend so the park was almost totally full. Lots of kids running around, riding bikes, etc. Our premium site was nice with grass and trees and fairly level. The adjacent site was close but not too bad. We kept our a/c and fan running through the night to drown out highway traffic noise.
The bathrooms are clean and they have security codes, which I like.
The picnic table was very nice and very clean! - Linda dlm
Aug 2016 - $60.00
Price relects average over three days and a festival weekend.
Site was level. Nice patio table but no fire ring
Friendly greeting on checkin. Office/store was clean, had good assortment of supplies and snacks. Bathroom was spacious, clean. Rec room was large and very nice. CG was busy, but they had enough staff to handle it.
Asphalt interior roads, mature tree between every site give moderate shade. Ends of each row had pretty flowers and shrubs. Well kept grounds. Plenty of staff in golf carts roving around on a regular basis. They proactively asked me if I needed help - handy, and good security too.
Although I reserved online, they were nice enough to call me to let me know Reggae Festival attendees would be partying there.
Highway 101 noise is noticeable but not a deal breaker.
Seems like a destination campground with golf course, nice pool, Eel River nearby, bike riding and a towed "train" for the kids.
Verizon signal was very weak. Cable TV was good.
A bit expensive for an overnight stay but the cg is very nice for a longer stay and if you plan to use their amenities. - phann

While expensive for the area, it is close to the historic Benbow Inn which has an excellent dinning room. Clean, grassy spots. Easy on and off Hwy 101. Oh yes, a golf course too. We spent an extra day and traveled 'The Lost Coast' road. - NancN'Me
